Artist & Connection Information
For ArtPrize 2016, the GRPM plans to host an outdoor exhibition consisting of art that will visually lend itself to the setting of the Museum grounds, demonstrate a propensity for awe, curiosity, humor, or offer hands-on educational opportunities. Artists who have work that coincides with this vision are encouraged to apply to our location. The GRPM is a proud participant of ArtPrize Educational Days. If you are an artist applying, please note if you would be interested in volunteering your talent for the Educational Days, helping to teach children about your art, style, process and help them learn and experience how to create similar pieces.
